"today in the bay" bob redell is live in san francisco this morning. how big of an impact will it have on traffic? that whole area has been under construction for a while. >> could cause some backups and congestion on the northern approach here to the golden gate toll bridge plaza and if you're not paying attention, you could be forced to cross the golden gate bridge and pay that $7 toll even though your intention is to stay in the city. head northbound 101 towards this
5:10 am
location and up the final approach to the bridge. you see that last exit sign and right before you get to the toll plaza, you have the option of exiting back into the persidio but come sunday, that all changes. that's when construction workers will realign part of the road, which will push the last exit about 1,000 feet south. so, if you're not paying attention, you could end up missing the new exit and get stuck having to cross the bridge and, of course, get back into the city you'd have to do a u and come back across the bridge and pay the $7 toll. they warn there could be congestion on this final approach because of drivers confused by this new alignment. this new alignment, by the way, is temporary. should only last a month or two. so, again, anyone that is going up northbound 101, you always see that last exit and you can always get off right before the toll plaza, but, again going to be about 1,000 feet back starting sunday. but for people, you know, out

5:17 am
good air quality as we wake up this morning showing you a live picture here of san jose where you will find an overcast sky when you walk out your front door and temperatures this morning close to 60 degrees just about everywhere. much milder than 24 hours ago. you could probably even get by without a jacket this morning in the south bay. so, right now temperatures are still mild out there, but this is the coolest point of the day, 70s on the way this afternoon, tomorrow, the same. and then the 80s move in quickly as we get into your mother's day sunday. for today, though, good air quality across the board and showers rolled through yesterday and our hillsides will stay greener a little bit longer and 70 degrees for the south bay and 72 for the east bay and 64 degrees in san francisco. not a bad day there but you're headed towards the 80s san francisco as we get into this weekend and especially next week, we're talking mid-80s. could see 90 in oakland as of wednesday. this is what you can expect for today. nice, comfortable conditions out there. mother's day weekend temperatures will warm up into the 90s and only in the warmest cities across the bay area.

5:37 am
issue for some reason you have to come back and they just want you to be aware and also wonder could be some congestion and some backups with drivers being confused and going wait, what and then slowing down and then you have the rest is history, i should say. reporting live here at the golden gate bridge toll plaza, i'm bob redell. >> the rest becomes mike inouye's problem. that guy stops and that guy hits him. >> it's called the wait, what. >> #waitwhat. we'll know what that is if it happens sunday, folks. be prepared. over here getting into san francisco from the east bay moves smoothly. i love this shot this morning because we see the low clouds in the buildings with the city itself and low clouds around the area and cleared from the bay bridge and we had earlier issues right on the san francisco side, but not a problem. look at the toll plaza itself and we do see a smooth, steady flow of traffic and the cash lanes a few folks waiting in
5:38 am
line there and the fastrak moving smoothly and you can see sunlight and that's great stuff as it starts. traffic flows nicely out of the maze and down the east shore froway through oakland 580 and 880 move smoothly and we talked about mist from overnight and drizzle and rain and damp roadways and whipple road reports of a car that went off the roadway and spun out and went into the hillside there and took place on the off ramp and a little bit of water on the road and combine to have that type of situation. no major injuries and a smooth drive around the rest of your bay and we just have your start fwr the westbound 580 commute coming through the tri-valley. no surprises for the morning commute. what do you have weather wise? >> hope you have a good surprise for your wife on sunday. good, good, good. happy to know mike is prepared, are you? 57 degrees in the south bay and 59 degrees along the peninsula and we would like to help you
